For all sports fans out there, London is a thrilling place to be in 2010 – from tennis, to football and rugby, to cricket, golf and marathons, there is no dearth of excitement. We’d like to call it a tantalizing prelude to the much-awaited London Olympics 2012!

Lord's is the setting for some of the best cricket in the world. As Andrew Flintoff said: "It's a special place. There's nowhere on earth like it to play cricket."
It hosts npower Test matches and NatWest-sponsored one-day internationals plus most of Middlesex's home games, some historic fixtures (such as Oxford v Cambridge) and the village and club finals. Looking forward, it will be the archery venue when London stages the London Games in 2012.
With three Tests at Lord's in 2010; floodlight one day internationals, Adam Gilchrist in the T20 Cup for Middlesex and more – the season will be another feast of cricket at The Home of Cricket. See match fixtures here: http://www.lords.org/fixtures/matches/
